Navigational Bronchoscopy at Indian Path


Navigational bronchoscopy using the Veran SPiNView® Thoracic Navigation System

Veran, which you can find at Indian Path Community Hospital, is the only navigation system to provide visualization, accurate navigation and real-time confirmation of nodule location.

Other navigational bronchoscopy systems are limited if the nodule is too small or too deep within the lungs to reach through the airways.

The Veran system is capable of a hybrid procedure called a SPiNPerc™. This technology reduces the multiple procedures, departments and visits typically necessary for a lung biopsy to one procedure… one department… one visit.

And it makes it possible to get the answer you and your doctor need to begin treatment as soon as possible.

Patient benefits include:

  • One visit and procedure
  • Evaluation by a pathologist during the procedure means faster results
  • Ability to diagnose suspicious spots while they’re small or in areas not accessible by traditional navigational bronchoscopy
  • Early diagnosis can save lives
